Dr. Chao to Participate in OFDD Leadership Bootcamp

September 28, 2020

Dr. Stephanie Chao has been accepted to the 2020-2021 Office of Faculty Development and Diversity’s (OFDD) Junior Leadership Bootcamp Series.  

"The goal of this program is to provide emerging leaders at Stanford Medicine an introduction to leadership content presented by current leaders from across Stanford Medicine," wrote Bonnie Maldonado, Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Development and Diversity, in her letter of congratulations to Chao.

The Bootcamp consists of four half-day sessions between October and June.

"I have found that there are multiple leadership styles that I have come to appreciate over the years. Some styles I admire in leaders may work for certain types of leaders with personality traits that are unique to them. A workshop like this can help me develop my own personal style as a leader," said Chao. "I want to be a leader that builds others up along with her, to build teams that people want to join rather than have to. Hopefully, this workshop will help!"

Chao is an assistant professor of surgery in the Division of Pediatric Surgery.
